Black Bean Chili is packed full of goodness and really hits the spot on a cold, winter night. I loved the addition of black beans to this scrumptious chili. My youngest son loves beans and he was calling this dinner meal "bean heaven". This chili went great with shredded cheese on top and spaghetti pasta on bottom. This fulfilling dinner recipe will definitely be back on the menu!
